Hi There - for 2-3 days we use Tatonka. Longer travels we use the MacPac Orient Express, however you could EASILY fit enough for 2 pax for 2-3 days. It also coverts into a shoulder slung bag also.

Check their sites!

Not sure of a supplier here in SIN, but if you'd like to see our two packs to see if they are suitable PM us and and we can arrange it!

We got our backpacks at Sports Connection (Funan branch). The guy running the shop is very knowledgeable and takes the time to help you find the right fit.

I picked out a few packs that I liked, then he loaded them with a couple of heavy books and let me walk around the store for several minutes to see how the backpack feels -- important if you're going to be doing a lot of walking with that pack! :)
